Ney­mar’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives have strong­ly denied reports that the Brazil­ian star wants to leave Paris Saint-Ger­main this summer.

Ney­mar da Sil­va San­tos, who is also Ney­mar’s agent and father, said there is “no truth” to claims that his son has asked to leave PSG due to fan discontent.

French news­pa­per L’E­quipe report­ed that Ney­mar had informed PSG of his desire to leave the club, but Ney­mar Sr. called this “fake news”.

“I can­not con­firm a news that has not hap­pened, L’E­quipe is L’E­Fake,” he said.

The reports sug­gest­ed Ney­mar was unhap­py with how PSG fans had demon­strat­ed against him in May after the Cham­pi­ons League exit.

How­ev­er, Ney­mar’s camp claimed the sto­ry was unfound­ed and sug­gest­ed there could be ulte­ri­or motives behind leak­ing the rumor.

PSG are yet to respond offi­cial­ly but are also expect­ed to deny Ney­mar’s immi­nent exit. Club offi­cials remain con­fi­dent that Ney­mar wants to stay and help the team achieve their goals.

Ney­mar still has three years left on his PSG con­tract and the club have no inten­tion of sell­ing him this sum­mer. PSG pres­i­dent Nass­er Al-Khe­laifi also recent­ly said that “nobody forced” Ney­mar to sign with the club.

Ney­mar’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives say the play­er is focused on prepar­ing for the new sea­son and help­ing PSG win tro­phies, not seek­ing a trans­fer away from the French capital.
